    I need to know the relationship between the cam and the crank shaft. I purchased this kit from minicastings and the plans they sent (10 pages) do not have any information on how to time the engine. I have googled and have the specs on the opening and closing of the exhaust valve but could find nothing on the relationship between the cam lobes and the crankshaft. Before I can set the exhaust valve, I need to know where the gears should mesh. The gears they provided do not have any timing marks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Jasonb. That is exactly the information I need. This illustration is not on the plans I received from the supplier.
